Red-Button aims to make this website accessible and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you use, regardless of your level of ability or if you have a disability.
While embracing new technologies, we also aim to:
- ensure that users with a disability can gain access with their assistive software or computer settings
- ensure users are pointed to the right direction to get information on how to customise their computers
The site’s layout takes into account users who are blind or visually impaired and is compatible with popular screen reading software.
Red-Button’s website accessibility is guided by the Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 and we strive to meet the AA standard wherever possible.
Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process and we are continually working to offer a user friendly experience. Where the highest standards of accessibility cannot be met Red-Button will aim to provide the information in an accessible format on request.
If you experience any problems with the site or if you have any comments, please email us at post@Red-Button.org
